Impact Window Care

The Do’s

  • After washing your windows and doors, apply a clear polymer coating to the exterior glass pane to protect again mineral stains, such as salt.
  • Dust often – keep your windows and doors cobweb-free.
  • Combat condensation with a squeegee instead of a towel so you’re not swirling the dirty condensation around on the windows or doors.
  • Wash regularly with a microfiber cloth and gentle soap.
  • Rinse your windows with water before washing with soap to remove solid dirt that can scratch your windows.

The Don’ts

  • Don’t use solvent or petroleum-based products on your windows.
  • Don’t use abrasive towels or cloth when wiping or cleaning your windows.
  • Don’t use scraping tools to clean your windows or doors.
  • Don’t paint your vinyl or aluminum windows or doors.
  • Don’t over-clean your windows and doors, as too much scrubbing can do more harm than good.
